Wet ‘n Wild First Impression

The days where a steeper price point equals quality and vice versa are long gone. Some brands are so inexpensive, it’s hard to believe they’re so good. One of them is Wet n’ Wild, an American drugstore classic that is now capturing hearts around Europe.

Holika Holika Face 2 Change Liquid Roller BB

Even after 8 years of blogging, I’m still not immune to gimmicky looking products. In fact, having a blog might actually even encourage ‘irresponsible’ purchases from time to time.

GlamGlow Volcasmic Matte Glow Moisturizer

Confused and convinced it probably was some gimmick I wouldn’t like, I left it in my cabinet for awhile. In my defense, I did have quite a few of moisturizers to review at the time. Once I tried it, I knew I had been holding off on trying what was the most unique formula I tried in years. A closer look at the packaging led me to the words ‘Made in Korea‘ and suddenly everything started to make sense. View Post


H&M Home | Spring 2018

Winter may be in full force but I already have my eye on Spring thanks to the lovely new H&M Home Spring 2018 campaign that was partly shot in Hotel Julien in Antwerp. A pretty colour palette of white, soft pink and beige hues combined with simple design and textural elements are key.
